Jerusalem, Nov 21 (EFE).- An Israeli resident was killed and four others wounded in an attack in Jerusalem’s Old City, Israeli emergency services said Sunday.
Police confirmed that an attacker opened fire before he was shot dead by security forces.
“We are treating one person critically injured and another who is in moderate condition and conscious along with two others who sustained light injuries,” United Hatzalah emergency medical services wrote on Twitter.
The attacker is believed to be Palestinian but his identity has not been revealed yet, according to Israeli local media.
This is the second such incident to take place in occupied East Jerusalem in less than a week as tensions there are high between Palestinians and Israelis.
On Wednesday, a 16-year-old Palestinian from an East Jerusalem neighborhood was shot and killed after he stabbed and injured two Israeli police officers.EFE
